Oh, I see. So, this is all a ginned up political play by Obama, Sharpton, and Holder. That’s what I suspected. It’s nice to see real world data confirm my suspicions.

Nice article. I often wonder what’ s going on. For example what portion of these violent crimes are gang related and whether those are analyzed differently.

“black people tend to offend more because they tend to be more disadvantaged”; that’s exactly backwards. Black people tend to be more disadvantaged because they offend more. They don’t commit crime because they’re poor, they’re poor because they commit crimes. Stop making excuses for freely chosen criminality.

Using Eric Holder’s statistics on this issue is the same as asking John Gruber about Obamacare – No federal government stats can be trusted past 2008 and we all know it!

Keep in mind that those statistics are reported crimes.If you take into account that there are a lot of crimes that happen in the streets that people don’t even report to police because of the fear of being labeled a snitch, the numbers have to be at least a few percentage points higher, if not more. I live in Baltimore and I see crimes happen all the time that go unreported.

Ed if you see crimes happen everyday that go unreported, then you are as guilty as the person who is committing them. You should be reporting them if YOU see them and YOU know they are going to go unreported. Your argument proves nothing.

Patrick – Verifiable statistical data supporting the information you presented was omitted. When you make claims that there is “official police-recorded data” provide a reference. Statistics requires analysis of data and a understanding of the results for accurate communication of the findings. Your article lacks supporting evidence for a subjective premise.

Evidence that “the police are racist…” That’s just such a generalization that you could never prove. That’s like saying evidence that “blacks are criminals.” The job of police is not to arrest people as proportionately to our population as possible: “No Jim, let that murderer go, arrest this white guy instead, we’ve already met our Latino quota…” The job of police is to arrest people who commit crimes and in doing so to keep us safe. We need to stop shaming them for putting their lives on the line for us. The reality is, when you’re in trouble, who are you gonna call?

The reason Spotify has a low per-play rate is because its listeners are spending a lot of time listening to music on the service. It’s an all-you-can-eat service, and people are eating much bigger meals on Spotify than they are on other services. The more plays a service has, the lower the per-play rate is.

The reason Groove has such a high per-play rate is because so few people with subscriptions were listening to it. Gamers used it when they’re playing their X-Box games, but otherwise it didn’t really catch on like the other services have. I bet that’s one of the reasons it shut down.

If you want to get a good idea of how much services are actually paying to copyright owners (or at least what they should be paying, if they were using only those works that are identified and licensed), look at the royalty pools instead of the per-play rates. It should be on those same statements that David Lowery looked at.

Yes, it is an all you can eat listening on Spotify. But so it is with Apple, Google, Amazon and other streaming services. So I don’t really get why you think Spotify is different to other services in this regard.

Interesting that David Lowery calls out Rhapsody / Napster for having a high per play rate, but he still sued them.

A high per play rate doesn’t mean that much if you’re not actually paying those royalties.

New and fresh money flows into the music market. A good report on this can be found here, for example:

Decades of decline have come to an end thanks to Spotify. However, Spotify itself is not yet operating profitably, but is designed for rapid growth in the billions. Artists rightly complain that many of them get stuck with the labels and never get through clean and fair to the artists, but they could now close almost directly with spotify and would no longer need the labels for their careers. But this is not seen everywhere. A prominent spotify critic (and Apple flatterer) is David Lowery. Every year he brings new calculations, which is supposed to be so good at Apple and so bad at spotifying. However, he has had such good experiences with the historically important iTunes as a source of paid downloads that it is difficult to reorientate himself. Today, however, the music plays somewhere else.

Apart from the emotional spotify aversion, the weak point of his calculations is the very narrow data basis. Only the US market is evaluated. Data analysis is limited to just one of many thousands of labels. The analysis only includes about 200 albums. The solo artist with a degree in mathematics has only about 75 listeners a day at Spotify with his more recent publications. This is certainly very frustrating when you see yourself as a big indie star, who can still count well and fights for a better pay for his fellow artists.
